The actuarial field is considered rather new to the Middle East and there are few local actuaries. Most actuarial work within the region is undertaken by actuaries from outside, primarily from Europe and South Asia. For instance, I have been working in the actuarial field in the Middle East for over eight years but have yet to meet another native Arabic-speaking female fully qualified actuary. I hope that this is a state of affairs that will change in the near future and that the actuarial field will become more accessible as a career option to those who are local to the region
